We are changing borrowing for eBooks and eAudiobooks

One of the things we love best about eBooks and eAudiobooks is the convenience. That’s why we’re improving how we deliver them to you. Basically, you’re going to get more features and more books!

Starting January 1 2020, we will discontinue CloudLibrary as an eBook platform and move to Overdrive/Libby.

Making Overdrive/Libby our primary source of eBook/eAudiobook content gives us more ways to give you an excellent customer experience. This new way of sending books your way means you now get the following benefits:

  • Priority access to our Overdrive content. You can jump quickly up any holds lists;
  • OverDrive will have a much larger collection with more breadth and diversity to quickly respond to your needs;
  • Our Overdrive curated lists feature some of our most popular content, so that you can find the best books easily and spend more time reading and less time searching.   

As we prepare for this change, all holds in CloudLibrary will be turned off on August 31st. You can continue to place holds or recommend titles for purchase in Overdrive/Libby.

Please check out OverDrive and especially their Libby app. You will find more information on our website here: https://www.reginalibrary.ca/digitalservices/library2go-overdrive.
